December 2008 has been great, sad to see it end

Normally, I am not a sad person at the end of things. My attitude has always been, "To everything there is a season" and every season must end, but I must say, this has been a great December. For some reason, my pictures posted backwards, so walk backwards with me through memory lane in December.
The annual "sockies" with Dentist husband's family. "Sockies" is basically a white elephant like game but we use food and practical items like window washer fluid, tape, etc to trade. This year, we contributed many large bottles of Listerine and it became the item people traded a lot. Poor Dentist husband's sister and her husband ended up with three large bottles. They won't need any for MANY years to come.
Fondue on Christmas eve. This year, we used nonalcoholic beer as our liquid and it was REALLY good.

Toothsome #3 was a soldier in his pre-school's Christmas program.

My cute nephew has his wisdom teeth removed by dentist husband and stayed at our house for a few days. My kids worship him and he was a delight to have around.
My birthday. It was a great one with the snow, good friends and fun kids and handsome husband.
Many other great things happened too without picture documentation. So, I am sad to say goodbye to December 2008. Hopefully, 2009 will be a good year despite the socialist president we just elected. Please bless leaders like Jason Chafettz will keep things under control and the fairness doctrine doesn't pass. Happy New Year!

It took me forever to figure out why your nephew was staying with you during wisdom teeth removal. Obviously, I've had mine removed years ago or I would have figured it out sooner ;) ?

Happy New Year!

Yes, Dentist husband doesn't like people to travel out of state after he has removed their wisdom teeth for at least four days. My nephew was at BYU, finished finals and then dentist husband took them out. The last thing he wanted was him having some problem and being stuck in a snow storm somewhere between here and Idaho.

Glad it was such a great month for you! I would have loved the listerine. :)

I love how you always call him "dentist husband". Do you have other husbands? :)
